Certainly this is a great way to begin a working day!
The column of light is so impressive, it seems like a giant reflector or something like this.
The color on the sky are great too.
I like the vertical composition made with the silhouettes of the mountains at down.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
This is a fantastic shot! WOW!
I think this phenomenon is called a sun-pillar and Jay (Shoot_Score) has a couple of photos and notes about it too (if you're interested).
The composition you managed here is also terrific - simple but breathtakin!
the colors and tones everywhere are magnificent and the exposure is outstanding!
The framing goes well with it and they all make a wonderful post!
Bravo and TFS
Nice capture you have here. I guess it's probably cause by the reflection of the sun in thin layer of mist or ice crystals?
Nice outline of the mountains in front of this beautiful morning sky.

I believe I have seen this before, though in multiples. I recall reading about the underlying optical phenomenon, too. In any event, I'm glad you captured it so well. TFS and best wishes,
